    I have been working at Salvation Army part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Non Profit, get to help people
    Managers very open on letting you do new tasks.
    Nice people

    Cons

    Very low pay
    No benefits
    No Health benefits even though you work with the homeless population which carry scarlet fever, bronchitis, scabies, and a slew of other illnesses...oh yeah, staph infections.

    The job is part time but they managers demand you work ALL HOLIDAYS (because the salaried , full time employees are "required" to take them off), and be on call during the winter for their other shelter...on the days you're off.

    The majority of funds going to the shelter comes from grant money, and the majority of donations go to church bs. The shelter has a ridiculously high turnover rate for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    It's unfair that shelter staff workers are forced to cater their whole life around your understaffed organization while getting paid minimum wage. It's insulting as the participants have better jobs than shelter staff. Forcing sheltering staff to be on call during your warming hour centers in addition to making them work every holiday is why i'm leaving the group.
